FOSTER COMMENTS:  Spencer loves to investigate and meet new people and dogs. He sure likes to cuddle on the sofa with his foster Mom, but if another dog is around or a favorite toy, he is ready to play.    He plays well with other dogs and particularly likes to play with tennis balls and stuffed toys.  He has a friendly personality and is a happy dog. Spencer LOVES to be with people and he’s yet to meet a stranger. He does great in the car and doesn't make a peep while riding in his crate.  At night, he just strolls right into his crate and waits for his night time treat. There isn’t a peep out of him until the next morning. Spencer would love to find a forever family with a canine companion for him to play with. 

EVERY DOG HAS A STORY:   Spencer found himself in a local animal shelter where he was picked up as a stray.  When shelter volunteers reached out for help, BFPA was happy to bring this sweet little dog into our program and help him on his journey to find his forever family.  Since coming in to foster, Spencer has learned his name and is working on some basic commands.  He fit right in with the other small dogs in his foster home and is acclimating quite well to his new environment.  He has enjoyed learning about how fun toys and tennis balls can be.  He can't wait to find his forever family!

About Best Friend Pet Adoption

About Our Rescue Group...

Best Friend Pet Adoption (BFPA) is a no-kill animal rescue organization based in central North Carolina. BFPA has no building, office, or shelter. We are an all-foster network committed to helping dogs and cats in need of homes. Individual donations are our most important source of income as we receive no public funding.

Our purpose is to provide medical assistance, foster homes, and adoption services to previously lost, abandoned, abused, or neglected animals in Wake County, NC and the surrounding counties. Our mission is to educate this disposable society in which we live that every life should be valued and cherished and is directly linked to human responsibility and commitment.

Almost all the animals we rescue require immediate medical attention. BFPA never turns away or euthanizes an animal because of the expense involved in returning them to good health. All our rescued animals are evaluated for temperament, examined by a veterinarian, vaccinated, microchipped (if possible) and sterilized, if age appropriate. Cats and dogs receive monthly flea/tick preventative and dogs also receive monthly heartworm preventative.

The most important ingredients we provide to these animals are loving care and a safe haven -- something most of them have never experienced. These cats and dogs live in volunteer foster homes until we find them a loving permanent home, however long it takes. We match these precious beings to a single, couple or family who understand cats and dogs should be full participating members of the family. Our hope is that these animals never have to experience being unloved again.

Since our beginning, BFPA has rescued and placed thousands of cats and dogs into their forever homes.

BFPA was created in 1998 by two Raleigh-area women who had volunteered with other established rescues in the Triangle. Their dedication to help homeless dogs and cats has led to an organization that has grown to over 225 volunteers strong.

BFPA received 501(c)(3) status in 1999.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Pets can be met during our adoption events (mostly on Saturdays) or by arrangements with the foster family.

Our Adoption Process...

All of our adoptions require submission of an application which is processed and and must be approved by our adoption coordinator. Potential adopters then take the animal on a trial (minimum of 2 weeks) before the adoption is finalized. This helps to ensure a good fit between the adopting family and the animal. All animals must be up to date on all vaccinations, spayed/neutered, and microchipped before the adoption can be finalized. Adoption fee is $225 for dogs, $115 for cats.
